See my 12/26/12 notes: suffice it to say this bottle did not get back in the game. Any benefit of the doubt I gave this Iron Horse wine is gone. It's above average, but only barely. Almost a sweetness is there. And it's flattening. Not what what you would expect from this vintage from this vineyard. Glad I have no more in our cellar, and would not buy any more.
See my 8/10/12 notes. This bottle was generally somewhat consistent, but the taste was not quite as good as earlier bottles. The brightness and complexity of flavors was not there. This cuvée, that has been fairly dry in earlier tastings, almost seems to be taking on a sweetness. Sparkle was beautiful, so I don't think the bottle was corked. It just was not as good as last. Hope my last bottle gets back in the game.
